The lavender I got last night on Hawthorne smells amazing! It was so fragrant that Fat Kitty was trying to find it. He was in the room I put the lavender in and he was smelling the air trying to figure it out. It was pretty funny to watch. Since Fat Kitty tends to eat all plants and flowers, I shoo’ed him out the room to preserve it a little longer.
One of them was Trader Joe’s. I discovered a new Greek yogurt that they carry! It’s in a similar container to the Chobani Greek yogurt. I’m looking forward to trying it today. I got a Vanilla and a Honey (both are 130 calories each).
I’ve realized that if I eat my Greek yogurt as my afternoon snack before heading to the pool, I am much fuller longer. Swimming creates a hunger like no other and I’m usually famished afterward.
On another note, I’ve battled insomnia for a few years now. I think part of it is anxiety related. I have a hard time falling asleep at night because I can’t turn my brain “off.” I’ve tried everything:
- sleeping pills (OTC)
- exercising before bed OR
- exercising during the day
- chamomile tea
- scented pillows
- relaxation CDs
- hot bath
Nothing seemed to work…except for medications but I refuse to do that anymore (see why here). The last few days have been rough. I’ve had insomnia for three nights in a row now. I know 3 nights isn’t too bad because I went almost 2 years with it and that was AWFUL. Being sleep deprived is no fun. It makes for a tired, cranky, irritable experience… 😦
QUESTION: Anyone else suffer from insomnia? Did you cure it? Any advice?
